Experience a real example of Google Classroom!

Want to be more efficient as a classroom teacher?
Desire to give students more timely feedback but struggle with how to do it?
Heard the term "paperless" but aren't convinced it can work?

Well, get inspired! 
Daniel Covey, science teacher at Belle Isle Middle School, has gone paperless using Google Classroom, and you're invited to see how it works!

Covey has created a duplicate version of his students' Google Classroom.  Interested OKCPS teachers and staff can join the duplicate class to visualize and experience how he digitally facilitates learning.  (The model Classroom keeps enrolled staff separate from his live students and their data, so you are free to explore to your heart's content.) 

Want to check it out?  (Of course you do!)
  1. Go to Classroom.Google.com.
  2. Click the plus-sign (+) in the top-right corner.
  3. Select Join Class.
  4. Enter the Class Code:  kx97c7
After completing the steps above, you will then be enrolled in the Classroom as if you were a live student! Note the assignments, announcements, resources, topics, descriptions, and directions Covey uses to organize the space.  Then, when you're ready, try Google Classroom with your students (or with your department, or grade-level team, or staff... oh my!).

Thanks, Mr. Covey, for inspiring others by sharing the great things you do!

  1. This is my 3rd year paperless, and always a work in progress, but I figured this would give a space for others to ask questions. Prezis are posted on my website which students have access to as well. http://tinyurl.com/biems7science.
